Oooo.. new thread!

Hi all! Haven't been around much these last few days, classes are already kicking into gear and I was asked be a mentor to first year law students, which I think is pretty cool, but that adds 8 hours of "office hours" to my already packed schedule.

I LOVE the new banners! I am envious of people who can do computer graphic type stuff... I don't have a brain for things like that, lol. Fantastic job MRK!

CantBreathe: I think it totally reasonable to be sad to say bye to your turtles! At least your mom will be near by to look in on them and let you know they are doing well :)

That news story is so heart breaking. Can't even imagine how much more damage could have been done if he had a gun! I am very much an anti-gun (pro-gun control) person! I'll have to be sure to share this story next time I find myself in a debate over the matter.

Has anyone heard from Dazzled by Cullens? Hope her operation went smoothly!

Woot woot, new thread!!!

I was planning to write a lot of things, mostly ranting that would be to "mature" to fit into the vent-thread, but also some things that would make sense.
However, now that it comes down to it I'm too tired, and too sad.
Lily knows why, MRK can guess, Paulinha can also guess if she remember what we talked about on msn a while back.
Cappu, I like your new hair!

Feel better Wingtear! I would hate for you to be sad! :cry:
I may not know you exceedingly well, but if you need someone to talk to, I've been told I'm a good listener (listening to the words on a screen?), and you can PM me anytime!

I do have it in a proper MWord table, but I can't work out how to put that on here. Damn post window.

Um, few questions. MRK PM'd me a banner, can someone tell me how to use it please. :)

Also, what's ETSY?

OK, I found a new book completely by accident yesterday. It's kind of Twilighty in that it's paranormal type stuff, but not completely about vampires. It's also, in the young fiction section of the bookshop. But anyway, it's called The Mortal Instruments - City of Bones. And the second one is called TMI - City of Ashes. They're about a girl called Clary, who meets these Shadowhunters, powerful humans who fight demons, and evil 'Downworlders' (vamps, werewolves, faeiries etc. but only the bad ones). It's pretty cool, and has an Edwardish sort of character, but there's a slightly odd twist at the end. Don't know if anyone else has heard of them, but they're worth a read.

Sam, I'm so sorry about your turtles. We had to give away our dog and our cats when we moved to Australia, and even though we found the perfect homes for them, it was really, really hard. We've actually never got another dog over it. I hope they're happy in their new home though. :) At least your mum can keep you up to date about how they're getting on.

Oh, and yeah, I'm sure the fact that they're shooting Twilight in Vancouver had nothing to do with my deciding to visit. ;) Whistles innocently.

Oh, and A. Hottest female stars
1. Angelina Jolie
2. Kate Winslet
3. Anne Hathaway (I just think she's beautiful)
B. Hottest male stars (not really in order, I love all of these guys equally :))
1. Jackson Rathbone (I just can't get over it :))
2. Andrew Lincoln (For those who don't know him, he's the guy in Love Actually who's outside Keira Knightley's door with those signs.)
3. Ryan Reynolds (Go figure, just love him), or Richard Armitage (vicar's boyfriend on Vicar of Dibley)

In case you can't tell I'm kind of partial to English guys. :)

I have to make an honour mention in the men category to R.Pattinson, as since I bought a Twilight poster I´ve dreamed once with him (and was the most geekiest dream of my life as he said "sorry for the bad films I do and you as fans has to se") as I never dream with famous people!
